DIALLANG Jaiyesimi has recently recovered from coronavirus and has already returned to training, revealed Swindon Town coach, Tommy Wright.

With a handful of Town players' recovery taking much longer than initially forecast, Adver Sport asked Wright for an update on the club's absentees before this afternoon's clash against Bristol Rovers.

The 54-year-old revealed a further outbreak occurred a couple of weeks ago within the Swindon camp which caused a number of other injured players to self-isolate following their interaction with the attacker.

Updating the press on the condition of the club’s injured players, Wright said a handful of the squad had been forced to delay their return once Jaiyesimi became the second Town player to be struck down with the virus after first-year pro, Toby Holland.

Wright said: “Tyler Smith was going to be about four or five weeks, but then we had a coronavirus case with the injured players – Diallang Jaiyesimi had Covid – so the players that were mixing with him, the injured players, they had to self-isolate.

“They’ll be back on Monday, DJ has started back training already, but when Zeki Fryers and Jordan Lyden come back on Monday, they should be pretty fit.

“Dion Conroy has started training to a certain extent, though it’s not full training.

“Hopefully, in the next two weeks we could have four players back – the Oxford game will probably be too soon still.”
